Not Open Voices

Lisa and Lucas Cherry

Lisa Cherry

Lisa’s passion for truth is second only to her passion for Jesus. As an author, speaker, and mom, she loves to mine out the wisdom of the word of God and impart these life- changing truths to today’s generation.

She and her husband Doug, along with their children, founded Frontline Family Ministries, POTTS (Parents of Teens and Tweens), Victory Dream Center, and REALITY Youth Center. She and Doug travel nationwide speaking to parents with Acquire the Fire conferences. She earned her bach- elor’s degree from Southern Illinois University–Edwardsville. After nearly losing her daughter Kalyn to a crazy case of sexual abuse, Lisa learned firsthand the dangers facing this generation. She and Kalyn are the authors of Unmask the Predators: The Battle to Protect Your Child, an eye-opening message to parents and teens to warn, equip, and empower families to nurture Christian kids in a sex-saturated culture. Lisa has been interviewed on national programs such as CBN. com, Moody Radio, American Family Radio, The Lighthouse Report, Women Today Radio, The USA Network, and more. She and her husband Doug are the parents of ten chil- dren, grandparents of four, and make their home in southern Illinois. 

Lucas Cherry

Lucas Cherry is on a mission. Already in his life, he has run enough miles as an athlete to circle halfway around the globe, and in ministry with his family, he has traveled across the nation. These opportunities have allowed Lucas to see firsthand the battle raging against his generation. His passion is to reach his peers with the life-transforming cross of Jesus Christ. While obtaining his bachelor’s degree in accounting and business management from Southern Illinois University, he was a track and field athlete and a motivational speaker for Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Frontline Family Ministries, REALITY Youth Center, and Victory Dream Center. He is continuing his education at Oral Roberts University where he will receive his master of business administration and his CPA licensure with plans to serve in international missions and nonprofit development.

As one of ten children, he learned to show up on time for meals and to drive a fifteen-passenger van.

Lucas’s personal mission statement is this: To bring glory and honor to Christ as he succeeds in everything he puts his hand to, and to bring others closer to the cross through his actions and speech.
